Business Plan Writing

Course Purpose

There is a tried and tested process to writing formal documents that short-circuits the problems of writer’s block and excessive self-critique. This business plan writing workshop is intended to take delegates through this process and support them with the skills and techniques to produce a plan that is comprehensive and above all readable.

A key aim of the workshop will be to identify the ‘independent variables’ which the author of a business plan can change so that the style and tone of documents can be adapted to suit different purposes, readerships and preferences.



During the workshop we shall cover the four key phases of producing any piece of written work: purpose, planning, production and polishing. A key outcome will be the extent to which delegates also accept the challenge of a fifth p – peer review.

The course will enable delegates to:

  • document their business plan in a clear, concise and accurate way
  • adapt their style, tone and format to meet the organisation’s requirements
  • make more effective use of time spent preparing, writing and proof reading
  • ensure the finished document is readable and achieves the desired results
  • support each other in peer review and co-coaching


Target Audience

Anyone who has to write a business plan, or would like to have a go


Essential Pre-Work

Delegates are asked to bring with them any examples they may have of their own work and any documentation they have for the business plan to be written.  Previous reports or written plans would be especially useful.  These will be used on the programme for editing and re-writing exercises and to give individual feedback to help them to develop their skills still further. Confidentiality within the workshop will be expressly sought among all delegates.
